The server is currently down for a few minutes (possibly up to an hour) whilst a bit of reconfiguration is being done.  Apologies for the temporary downtime.

I'm going to increase the server resources a bit (which will be about 5 or 10 minutes downtime at an estimate) and then I'll look into that long block.

Okies, just checked and the outcome is probably the reverse of what may have been feared - the pool has actually paid out for more blocks than have been found.  Since the start, 320 blocks have been paid  (at the time I started writing this post)  but we've only actually found 316 blocks  (at the time I started writing this post).  In other words the pool has been 4 blocks too generous to members.

I'm not sure why this has happened.  We did get a lot of dust spam when the dustpamming happened a few weeks ago.  This may have glitched things (hopefully just temporarily).  The wallet is quite large as a result of the spam (156 Megabytes) so I'll have to keep an eye on things to check that the pool doesn't get over-generous again.

The long block itself (132,797 shares) could have been a slight statistical anomaly.  Based on current difficulty, the average number of shares in a block should be approximately 18,057.  If my recall of basic mathematical probability is correct, this would mean that probability (p) of not finding a block in 1 share would be 1-(1/18057) , ie 0.99994461981503018220080855070056

Therefore probability of not finding a block in 132797 shares = 0.99994461981503018220080855070056 ^ 132797,
which is 1/1563.2559503291552340608534314844

Seeing as we've found 316 blocks (at the time I started writing this post) we can take this further and say the probability of this not happening in 1 block = 1-(1/1563.2559503291552340608534314844)
which = 0.99936030948752221763835994466282

Therefore the probability of it not happening in our 316 blocks =   0.99936030948752221763835994466282 ^ 316 , which = 0.81692590176193059890347301959426

So the probability of it having happened = 1- 0.81692590176193059890347301959426
which = 0.18307409823806940109652698040574 , or 1 in 5.4622691556268153974020504585354

Therefore although it was quite a horribly long block, the probability of it happening in our 316 blocks so far is not as hugely-wildly unlikely may seem.

If I've got any of the mathematics wrong by the way, please feel free to correct me anyone Smiley

Sorry that the pool is down at the moment.  Litecoind is falling over and failing to start because of such a large wallet.dat, caused by past spam dust.  I'll be fixing this with a new wallet.dat but need to get the litecoins transferred out of the old one to new a wallet on the server using my own pc to open the pool's old wallet and send the transactions to the pool's new wallet.

On a good point, I checked out the blocks paid vs blocks found again a couple of days ago and the figures actually do tally exactly apart from the first ever block.    My original thoughts in my 6th January post that the pool had been 4 blocks too generous didn't take into consideration 5 orphaned blocks which were not paid.  

The pool missed out the very first block because the way I programmed the pool accidentally requires more than one transaction in the wallet before the pool records a block as found. so round one was actually the second block found as there were no transactions when the first block was found.  I'll be apportioning 50 litecoins among those who contributed shares in Round one once the pool is back up and running to make up for this.

The new wallet shouldn't miss out any blocks, as it'll already have one transaction to start with when I send the old wallet's balance to it.

Hippety-hop, the pool is back with a nice new wallet, clean and free of all of that horrible dust spam (yuck!).  Part of the problem also seems to have been a huge amount of actual email spam that was clogging the server's hard drive too - 8 gigabytes of the stuff in the "postmaster" email account!  I've got a cronjob running to delete any more spam going in there to stop that from happening again.

I've also allocated the Litecoins from round zero as follows, based on the shares earned in the first ever round:

Total PPLNS shares in rounds 0 to 1 (inclusive)= 4808

Coins awarded for missed "block zero"
partyhard.......1471 shares....... 15.297420965058 Litecoins
fungus.......823 shares....... 8.5586522462562 Litecoins
paladin.......676 shares....... 7.0299500831947 Litecoins
vanderbleek.......646 shares....... 6.7179700499168 Litecoins
P4man.......644 shares....... 6.6971713810316 Litecoins
figroll.......205 shares....... 2.1318635607321 Litecoins
froggy.......127 shares....... 1.3207154742097 Litecoins
effayy.......113 shares....... 1.1751247920133 Litecoins
monhon123.......103 shares....... 1.0711314475874 Litecoins

Total coins awarded....50

With that done, the pool has paid out perfectly.

Okies folks, please jump back in for round 341 - the water's fine....and no longer dusty Smiley

If I understand this right, according to PPLNS the best time to mine would be in the last 5k shares(yes I know it's impossible to determine when this will be)

This is getting to be a very looooooooooong block.

Yes, as long as you have shares in the last 5000 you'll get a share of the block mined.

I've just checked the wallet and we've actually found 4 blocks since the new wallet was created.  I've had to input the first block from the new wallet into the database manually (round 341) and the pool has now caught up with the other three blocks automatically now.  

This seems to be a similar (but slightly different) situation to when the first ever block (round zero) was found.  If things go the same way as before, everything should now run smoothly after this first manual push-off.

Manual awards for round 341 were as follows:

Total PPLNS shares in rounds 340 to 344 (inclusive)= 19875

Coins awarded for missed block
fungus.......4378 shares....... 11.035864150943 Litecoins
gallifreyan.......3411 shares....... 8.5982943396226 Litecoins
spriggy.......2196 shares....... 5.5355773584906 Litecoins
monhon123.......1925 shares....... 4.8524528301887 Litecoins
alexrussel1980.......1211 shares....... 3.0526339622642 Litecoins
choleman.......1201 shares....... 3.0274264150943 Litecoins
keeyai.......1103 shares....... 2.7803924528302 Litecoins

Hello tommyl - you need to input a Payment Address on your Account Details page for your Litecoins to be sent. Smiley  

Once you've done that, payouts should be every 40 minutes as long as your "Current Confirmed balance" (shown on the left hand panel on the site when you're logged on) is greater than your "Automatic Payout" minimum (shown in your "Account Details" page).  

Apologies by the way to everyone for the downtime earlier today - caused by more email spam clogging up one of the logs.

I mined here ok a few days ago, but i can't seem to get much past the login page on the web-pages now:

Fatal error: Uncaught litecoinClientException:
  • : Connect error: Connection refused (111) thrown in on line 0

That's all i have been getting for the last twelve hours or so :-/

Sorry about that - more email spamming going on which brought things to a halt. I've put more bandages around the email system and thinking of just blocking all email....at the moment the bandages mean I'm not getting any email from the site anyway.  Very annoying that people can be so destructive.

Thanks for joining Joshwaa and welcome to the pool.  At 954 Kh/s as I we're only inches away from the big 1mh/s hurdle.  Just a tiny hop and we're there!

Yea I might point some more power to it later. Doing some moving of rigs.  Also need to know how to set up miner on a i7-2600k@4.8 got three of them and i don't think I should only be getting 20KHash only. IDK I am new to this I will admit.
